Some of reports also suggests that Suresh Raina has decided to opt out from IPL 2020 due to the increase of COVID-19 cases in Chennai Super Kings camp.
“On Friday night, in fact, there was a huge ruckus. He tried calling all his teammates, coach (Stephen Fleming), skipper (MS Dhoni) again and again to share his concerns. MS, in fact, also tried explaining things to him but nothing worked.
“He was badly psyched up and worried. Eventually, everybody else realised there was no point holding him (back) from travelling back because he was totally gripped by fear,” a sources told The Times of India.
